Wooing The Desi Globetrotter: Foreign Airlines Rush In With Their Latest Planes, Products


With India emerging as a major air traffic growth centre, foreign airlines have stopped their practice of deploying old planes on routes to the country. Instead they are now using their latest planes and new products on India routes to try and woo the great desi globetrotter.
